In her work “Rhizoma”, Melle Foortjes explores the relationships between herself, her work, her processes and her environment. These elements come together in an overall-installation. Rhizoma is a representation of the philosophical concept “Rhizome” by Gilles Deleuze, which deals with how elements and their environments influence each other and therefore always change into new qualities that are open to new connections.

In her work “111 days in Jerusalem” Judith Glimmerveen reports on her experiences in Jerusalem, where she studied at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design during the past semester. She shows her perspective on the city, everyday life and what connects and separates people.

The Fine Art & Cross Media Design study programs work in a multidisciplinary manner, which influences the form of presentation. The medium of photography is at the basis of the work.
